Jocelyn was a teacher at the Dalton School in NYC, and has been working with constructivist, experiential project-based learning since her undergraduate days. She wished she had known what engineering was as a kid; she started this company so other kids would. She grew up in Honolulu and her preferred state is oceanic immersion. She used to front a rock band and nothing can get between her and Chop’t.
Samantha fell in love with programming during her senior year at Columbia. Since then, she's been on a mission to introduce every kid to this amazing skill. She's been influenced by the likes of John Holt and Ivan Illich and cares deeply about empowering kids to learn on their own. She hails from the proud city of Detroit and can probably beat you barefoot in a marathon.
